Above, Wheeler Army Air Field, December 7, 1941 - Smoke coming from planes on a row of undamaged aircraft, upwind of a conflagration of other burning planes, and no blast damage or bomb craters anywhere, says the aircraft were deliberately set alight at ground level.

               
              
In this shot no one appears to be at action stations, despite the undamaged battleship should be an obvious target for enemy bombers, while spectators wandering around fails to assert a force of some hundreds of enemy planes is at large!

               
              
One aircraft in this pic, while no one appears to be too concerned, spectators are cramming every vantage point on an as yet undamaged vessel - Surely if an attack were underway it would be the last place to be!

Yes! That is true, the Japanese codes red and blue  had been broken and purple partially broken, Roosevelt/Marshall & Co. Taking into consideration everything that was going on in the first week of December,  knew the attack was coming but did nothing to prevent it, because they needed it to galvanize the American people into support for Americas entry into WW2.

Sailors reported that on the morning of the attack they had been ordered to open all the bulkhead doors in the the battleships to let the ships "air out" because a big shot was coming to make an inspection.

FDR Knew Pearl Harbor Was Coming

Written by Alexander Cockburn        on June 14, 2001. Posted in Miscellaneous, Posts.

Pearl
Harbor the movie offers fresh opportunity for those who correctly believe
that Roosevelt knew of an impending attack by the Japanese and welcomed it as
a way of snookering the isolationists and getting America into the war.

The Naval Institute’s website is featuring a detailed article by Daryl Borgquist to
the effect that high Red Cross officials with close contacts to Roosevelt quietly
ordered large quantities of medical supplies and experienced medical personnel
shipped to Hawaii well before Dec. 7, 1941. In 1995, Helen Hamman, the daughter
of one of these officials, wrote to Bill Clinton a letter disclosing that her
father had told her in the 1970s that shortly before the Pearl Harbor attack Roosevelt
had told her father of the impending raid and told him to send Red Cross workers
and supplies to the West Coast to be deployed in Hawaii. Roosevelt, Ms. Hamman
wrote, told her father "the American people would never agree to enter the
war in Europe unless they were attack [sic] within their own borders."Borgquist’s
research, now published in the Proceedings of the Naval Institute, shows
that the Red Cross was indeed staffed up and on a war footing in Hawaii by November
1941.

Foreknowledge
by FDR of the "surprise attack" on Pearl Harbor has been demonstrated
about every five years, ever since the Republicans made a huge issue of it after
World War II.

Each time there’s a brief furor, and then we slide back into
vaguer language about "unproven assertions" and "rumors."

It’s one of the unassailable of 20th-century history, as Charles Beard discovered
in 1948 when he published his great book President Roosevelt and the Coming
of the War 1941, subtitled "A Study in Appearances and Realities."

Beard effectively disposed of the "surprise attack" proposition after
researching official government documents and public hearings. For example, the
State Dept.’s own record showed that FDR’s Secretary of State Cordell
Hull conferred with the British ambassador on Nov. 29, 1941, and imparted the
news that "the diplomatic part of our relations with Japan was virtually
over and the matter will now go to the officials of the Army and Navy." As
Beard and others pointed out, the U.S. had already not only undertaken the blockade
and embargoes that forced Japan into the war, but also knew that Japan was about
to attack and waited for it to do so, so the isolationists could be outmaneuvered
and the U.S. could enter the war on a tide of popular feeling.

At
dawn on Dec. 7, 1941, the first wave of Japanese planes flew in from the east
over the Waianae Mountains, leaving about 4000 American casualties with 2400 dead.

Beard’s scholarly but passionate investigation into secret presidential diplomacy
incurred venomous abuse, as did his judgment that the ends (getting the U.S. into
the war) did not justify the deceptive means.
